Love this place! The rooms are spacious and beautifully designed. The views are serene and best of all the staff is friendly and accommodating. Btw, they have a restaurant which I heard was delicious! They have an amazing boutique and shop. They apparently have a salon too.

Hotel's Favorite
This small hotel has just been remodeled and oh what an upgrade! The rooms are a good size with amenities usually found in larger hotels. Think luxurious bedding with comfortable beds, large 55' 4K Ultra Smart TV, thick spa robes & slippers, a Bose bluetooth speaker and luxury bath products from (Malin+Goetz). My room also had a sitting area with a nice sleeper sofa. The room also had a good sized balcony for sitting out overlooking the Median River Valley. The hotel has a large modern pool and private cabanas. They also have a full service spa with spa packages and body treatments. They are offering a wellness retreat in January to get you out of the holiday stress. They have a great restaurant next door that has breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as Sunday brunch. The restaurant does have a full bar. The Barrel room upstairs is a quieter place to sit and have a glass of wine or drink. This well appointed room is worth the visit. The restaurant also has a large patio for dining while looking out over the valley. Hillside Boutique is only 20 minutes from downtown San Antonio and close to Sea World and Castroville is a quaint town with lots of history. Visit the big city but come here to de-stress!

The men and women employed by the Hillside Boutique Hotel provided the "Best" customer service that I and my family and friends have ever experienced at a hotel!!!!! Every experience was a joy. The ladies at the front desk were so wonderful and accommodating and helpful. The restaurant and bar staff...…."WOW" they took care of our family and friends all day and into the evening!!!!! I do not think I can describe in words what an amazing time we had. We arrived on Friday, 25 Oct and departed on Sunday, 27 Oct. The Barrel Room was perfect for our group. We took it over on Friday and used it as our gathering area. We laughed into the night and closed the Barrel Room both nights. I recommend to everyone staying in or around Castroville......stay at the Hillside Boutique Hotel. The food is the best in Castroville and the view is spectacular. The weather was to cool for us to use the pool, but we al want to come back and take advantage of the pool and spa. Stay here......it is a must.

Nice comfortable rooms with a view. We ate breakfast, lunch, and dinner there. Food was innovative and good. They used to have an outstanding buffet, and it was always jam packed when I was there. Don't know why they dropped it, but we seemed to the only people eating at our meals.

Really enjoyed our brief stay in this not run of the mill hotel. The employees were very friendly and our room was very clean. Although the hotel is located close to highway 90, noise was not a problem in the room. One unusual aspect of the hotel is that you have to go to the office to get ice but since the hotel is not very large, this was not a problem. There is no doubt that when we are in this area, we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback. We greatly appreciate you sharing your experience. We understand that it's not typical to get ice from the front desk at a lot of hotels, but that's one more thing that sets us apart from everyone else. We like to see it as an elevation to our customer service. Coming to the front desk for ice allows us another opportunity to interact with our guest and enhance that guest experience. We are happy that is was not an inconvenience for you. If it is ever an issue, we will gladly take some to your room as well. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and value your choice to stay with us when you are in the area again.
